Banana Musa Vittata Leaf Fine Art Botanical Print by Houtte

Brandywine General Store

SKU: 76 botanical

An archival premium quality art print of the Banana Leaf from the Musa Vittata Tree by Louis Van Houtte for sale by Brandywine General Store. The artist painted this leaf for his botanical books "The Flowers of the Greenhouses and Gardens of Europe". This illustration was in volume 15 which was printed around 1863. Houtte just shows the huge leaf which almost fills the entire page of the picture. The bottom of the leaf is shown in its entirety with a small stem, but the top of the leaf is cropped off, this gives the print an almost modern, abstract look. We also have the print that Houtte drew of the entire musa vittata tree which can be found elsewhere in this category, the two prints would make a good grouping together. Musa Vittata. Botanical art print #76
